By Ahmed Aboulenein CAIRO (Reuters) - Investigators have downloaded data from one of the black box flight recorders on EgyptAir Flight MS804 and are preparing to analyze it, bringing them closer discovering what caused the jet to crash, Egypt's investigation committee said on Wednesday. "Preliminary information shows that the entire flight is recorded on the FDR since its takeoff from Charles de Gaulle airport until the recording stopped at an altitude of 37,000 feet where the accident occurred," Egypt's Aircraft Accident Investigation Committee said in a statement. Search teams have salvaged both of the so-called black box flight recorders.
Turkish police carried out raids against suspected Islamic State cells in Istanbul and the Aegean coastal city of Izmir, the state-run Anadolu agency said on Thursday, two days after a triple suicide bombing killed 42 people at Istanbul airport. Counter-terrorism police teams led by special forces officers carried out raids in three working-class neighborhoods of Istanbul - Pendik, Basaksehir and Sultanbeyli - Anadolu said, without citing its sources. Nine suspected militants, thought to have been in contact with Islamic State members in Syria, were meanwhile detained in raids in three districts in Izmir, the news agency said.
